Mayor's Event, August 29, 2017 - CANCELLED

We regret to inform you that Tuesday's event with Mayor Price at City Club has been cancelled. The Fort Worth Downtown Neighborhood Alliance is working diligently with the Mayor's office to get this rescheduled for a future date. Once we have the revised date, we will send out another invite to the Downtown community as I know you are all anxious for a City update.

In the meantime, please look for the following invites coming up with our organization:

- September- Omni Hotel Pool Party

- October- Trinity River Vision Authority Project Update at Petroleum Club

The Mayor's office apologizes for any inconvenience this has caused with the neighborhood and looks forward to speaking to us at a later date.

Important information for Residents in and around Downtown.

This afternoon we were informed by Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) there has been a confirmed West Nile Virus (WNV) positive mosquito sample collected from a testing site near you in the City of Fort Worth.

A positive sample was collected in your area at Fire Station 1, 120 N Pecan St.

It’s extremely important that our community continue to work together to reduce the mosquito population by removing mosquito habitats from their property and remind their neighbors to do the same.

The most effective means of protection, even more than spraying, is to stay focused on the reduction of the mosquito population:

• Please remove all standing water in empty flower pots, pet bowls, outdoor toys, gutters, etc.

• Maintain your swimming pool.

• When you’re outdoors, remember to wear repellent that contains DEET.

• Wear clothing with long sleeves and pants when applicable.

IMPORTANT UPDATES

Continued vigilance when it comes to preventing the spread of mosquito viruses in our community is essential.

• Since there have been West Nile Virus positive mosquitoes in your neighborhood, the city’s Code Compliance officers will be monitoring the area looking for litter and debris that could invite mosquitos to breed and nest.

• You can help by keeping your grass mowed and trees trimmed.

• Additionally, officers will check inspecting city property for standing water and addressing it.

If there’s an issue with standing water at a location that is not city property, report it to the City’s Customer Care Center at 817-392-1234.

Additional Questions? Contact the Tarrant County Public Health Zika Hotline at: 817-248-6299.

Thank you so much for all your continued efforts.

Code Compliance Department, City of Fort Worth
